    They are called "firearms" for a reason. Powder burns, expanding gas propels the bullet downrange. Any opening, such as the chamber or gaps around a cylinder, will allow some burning gases to escape.

    Just for the record!
    Fiocchi is one of the oldest munitions manufactures around and also one of the largest world wide.
    Just because you aren't as familiar as with American brands doesn't mean its not a quality amo, Much like RWS, GECO, etc

I feel like basic firearms principles will suffice, and I just need to work on areas that differ between rifles and handguns such as stance, target acquisition, etc. This is the only forum I have ever joined, and what a resource this is! I'm going to check out the new threads and give whatever help I'm able. Thanks again guys. Hooah!
    Many times people think that to pay for instruction Is a waste of money.
    but then if you shoot up hundreds of dollars worth of ammo and still have bad habits or foundation to shoot from, well that's really wasted money.
    it depends on the individual and what experience friends, family may be able to provide.

    Yep - Founded and HQ in Italy, Fiocchi America has a solid presence in the US market and actually has a major factory right here in Misourri.

    Many of the handgun loads tend to run a bit on the fast/hot side and I'm happy to carry 9 and 40 SD rounds in guns that have been checked out with it.

    Welcome to the forum and starting with a question is a great way to engage with this group -- as you are probably gathering!!!
    If we choose, we can live in a world of comforting illusion.

    Normal.
    You haven't seen flames untill you shoot a magnum revolver.
    Flames from both sides of the cylinder/ barrel gap, gigantic fireball from the muzzle.
    Some ammo uses slower burning powders, causing the flame from the ejection port.
    I reload all my auto ammo with fast burning powder, and bearly get a muzzle flash at night with my PT111G2.

    Why do I carry a gun?
    I don't plan on getting a flat, but I still have a spare tire.

    I love the smell of gun powder in the morning, it smells like freedom.
